This week I painted up Ezren, Icon Wizard, from the Iconics II Pathfinder Miniatures set. Like Monday’s figure, which I decided to turn into a Fire-themed Elementalist, this one I felt would serve as a good Elementalist too, but an Air-themed one. He just had a very wind blown look about him, and I thought I could accent that by painting some wind designs on his clothing.
I prepped the figure in the usual way; soaking it in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish- soap added, then giving it a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying it. I then glued the figure to a white-primed 1" fender washer with Aleene’s Tacky glue, and then glued the washer-mounted figure to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of the Elmer’s glue.
I began by giving the entire figure a wash with Reaper MSP “Blue Liner” using a wet brush. When the Liner was dry, I painted his face and hands with Folk Art “Dark Brown”. I then painted his long sleeve under shirt with Crafter’s Acrylic “Cool Blue”, and then the short sleeve under shirt with Crafter’s Acrylic “Navy Blue”. Next, I painted the top tunic with Folk Art Cloudy Day".
I then painted his boots, wrist guards, and crossbow bolt pouch with Americana “Zinc”. Next, I painted his leather armor pieces with Americana “Wedgewood Blue”, and then the border of his tunic with Americana “True Blue”. I followed that by painting his hair with Americana “Dove Grey”.
Next, I painted his staff with Folk Art “Barn Wood”; and then did the tubular case on his left, and the small pouch on his right with Crafter’s Acrylic “Storm Cloud Grey”. I also painted the cross bow with Americana “Asphaltum”, and the bolts and the crossbow string with Americana “Khaki Tan”. I painted some of the dangles from his belt with Folk Art “Metallic Blue Sapphire”, and the then went back and repainted the sleeves of the long sleeve under shirt with Folk Art Pearl “Aqua Moire”. I also overpainted the border of the tunic with Folk Art Extreme Glitter “Hologram”.
After everything had a while to dry, I gave the entire figure a wash with Citadel “Nuln Oil” wash using a wet brush". When the wash was dry, I painted his eyes, and then highlighted his skin with a mix of the “Dark Brown”, and Crafter’s Acrylic “Flesh”.
I then highlighted the hair with White and then moved to highlighting his long sleeved shirt with the base “Aqua Moire”, and the short sleeve shirt with the “True Blue”. Next, I highlighted his tunic with some of the base “Cloudy Day” mixed with some White. After that, I used the White to paint various spiral wind symbols on his tunic. I then highlighted his staff by drybrushing it with the base “Barn Wood”.
Next, I painted all the belts and unpainted pouches with Black, and when dry, I highlighted them with Ctadel “The Fang”. After that, I highlighted his leather armor with some of the base W’edgewood Blue" mixed with a bit of the “Cool Blue”, and then highlighted his boots, bolt pouch, and wrist guards with some of the “Storm Cloud Grey”. I highlighted the tube thing, and the the large pouch with some of the “Dove Grey”, and the crossbow bolts with the base “Khaki Tan”. Next, I highlighted the sleeve and bottom borders of his tunic with some of the base “True Blue” mixed with some of the “Cool Blue”. When that was dry, I went back over it with some of the “Hologram” glitter paint. I then painted the ends of the tube thing, the fittings on the crossbow, and the beer stein-looking object at his side with Ceramcoat “Metallic Pewter”, and then highlighted these parts with Folk Art “Silver Sterling”. Lastly, I painted the figure’s integral base with White.
When everything had overnight to dry, I glued a couple pieces of light blue sea glass to his base. After the glue dried, I drybrushed the glass lightly with White, and then gave the figure a coat of Ceramcoat “Matte Varnish”. The next day, I flocked the base with Woodland Scenics “Snow” flock and the next day I sprayed the figure with Testor’s Dullcote. When the Dullcote was dry, I went back and repainted the sea glass with Americana “DuraClear Gloss”.
I’m really happy how he turned out. My hope was that he would read as “Air”, and not as “Water”. It was a risk with using so much blue; however I think it comes across as “Air” enough, so I’m satisfied. Here are the two Elementalist together: Fire and Air.
